Profile The exact description for this album!!!…European Hi-Tech AOR/Pop with that unique 80’s sound… This german band is a cult group in AOR circles, founded 1982 in Hamburg by Jan Krueger, Christian Blau and Frank Winneberger. Wrongly marketed as a pop band, they blend a hi-tech sound with lite AOR.  This is the third and final release of the band in 1988 on Polydor and produced by Lorenz ‘Lonzo’ Westphal who is also the songwriter.

“This Love” and “Without A Meaning” are the highlights here…”Why”, “Don’t You” and “Take A Trip” are enjoyable too. “Take A Trip” also released as a single and is the album’s video clip. A short time later the group split up although they were quite successful, especially in the north of Germany.
